You are required to complete and pass the mandatory student training before you can register for your next semester of classes. It is your responsibility to plan accordingly and complete this requirement in a timely mannerCourtesy reminders will take place throughout the semester. Registration holds will not be lifted for students who have not completed this requirement. 

Getting Started

Select Modules listed on the left under Home.  Complete each module.  There are 5 modules.

You can work at your own pace and modules can be completed in any order. 

For best results submitting Canvas assignments and quizzes, use a desktop or laptop computer. Using a mobile device or the Canvas Student App is not recommended as it is not fully supported. We also recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox.
